Wednesday: Biscuits 3, Braves 2

The Biscuits endured some late-inning suspense to end a five-game losing streak with Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Mississippi Braves.

The Braves loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth against Juan Sandoval. Edward Salcedo, after fouling off three straight two-strike pitches, grounded out to end it.

Center fielder Mikie Mahtook cut down the potential tying run at home to end the eighth inning.

Montgomery snapped a season-long five-game losing streak and avoided its longest skid in almost two years.

Jake Thompson, who has posted quality starts in his last five starts, gave up two runs over seven innings. With his seven wins last year, Thompson (9-9) is just the seventh pitcher in Biscuits history to reach 16 wins with the team.
